I assume it's poplar?

Marcus, the guitar looks exceptionally clean and the woods are beautiful, I've been following Gage's work for awhile now and I must say it's stunning!

Hey Dennis, great eye! It is indeed a little different from what most luthiers are doing, but it is incredibly rigid without adding substantial weight or enroaching on the available surface area of the top itself

Hey Howard, agreed! I think it would look pretty good next to your Gaffney
